The Republican National Committee (RNC) is standing by GOP nominee Donald Trump, according to CNN.

“Nothing has changed in regard with our relationship,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus reportedly stated during a phone call with members of the RNC Monday afternoon. “We are in full coordination with the Trump campaign. We have a great relationship with them. And we are going to continue to work together to make sure he wins in November.”

On Monday, Trump took to Twitter to respond to news that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan told members of Congress that he won’t be defending the Republican nominee in the future and, according to The Washington Post’s Bob Costa, Trump’s inner circle is laughing off Republicans “agonizing” over Trump remaining as the nominee following the release of a tape revealing Trump making lewd remarks about women in 2005.

“Paul Ryan should spend more time on balancing the budget, jobs and illegal immigration and not waste his time on fighting Republican nominee,” Trump posted on Twitter Monday afternoon.

Trump’s tweet comes after reports emerged that Ryan said he won’t campaign with Trump and will only focus on the Republican Party maintaining the majority in Congress during a conference call with lawmakers on Monday morning.

Costa noted on Twitter that a member of Trump’s inner circle laughed off news of many Republicans struggling with the fact that Trump remains the Republican Party nominee, saying, “We don’t care.”
